Ernie Wilding is no stranger to the building and construction industry. The founder and CEO of FAS Windows & Doors has applied his 36 years of experience to become Central Florida’s premier window and door supplier for new-construction builders, as well as homeowners renovating their existing homes.
After establishing two highly successful home improvement companies in Florida and North Carolina, Ernie turned his attention closer to home. He had a vision for a business that would focus solely on the supply, service and installation of quality windows and doors. Working side by side with his son, John, Ernie launched FAS Windows & Doors in early 2005. In a relatively short time, the father and son team has seen unprecedented growth, boasting an impressive list of clientele including many of Central Florida’s premier custom luxury homebuilders, architects and designers.
“It’s not often you get the chance to work with your father” says John, FAS Windows & Doors chief operating officer. But the passion to see the company prosper does not stop with the Wildings. Each employee, from top to bottom, is willing to pitch in wherever needed to ensure customers receive exceptional products with exceptional service.
In addition to being an Andersen Circle of Excellence Dealer, FAS represents many other leading window and door manufacturers such as Simonton, Eagle, PGT,Windoor, Milestone, Silverline and KML. The rapid growth and success of FAS Windows & Doors led to the opening of a second design center located in Tampa, to complement the L.B. McLeod location.
Customer service is the driving force behind FAS’s success. Though representatives will gladly make on site calls, clients are encouraged to visit one of FAS’s state-of-the-art design centers. At these 14,000-square-foot facilities, customers are seated in comfortable, lush leather chairs positioned around a 42” plasma flat-screen television—where the extensive line of products is showcased—and given a tour of the showroom and warehouse, where full-size windows and doors are on display.
Practically any shape, size, color and style are within the customer’s reach.Though the product line leans toward high-end offerings, FAS prides itself on accommodating any budget.
FAS Window & Doors maintains active membership in professional organizations and supports the community through charitable contributions and support.
